To Walk Cloistered In The World

'Do as little children who with one hand hold fast to the hand of their father and with the other gather strawberries or blackberries along the hedges. 

'In the same manner, while gathering and managing the goods of this world with one hand, hold fast to the hand of your heavenly Father, turning to Him from time to time to see if your actions or occupations are pleasing to Him. 

'Take care, above all, that you do not leave His hand and protection, thinking of collecting and gathering more.'

St. Francis de Sales
